This is a perfect cake to share with friends for afternoon or morning tea, the smell of cinnamon and orange is just so divine as you bake this cake, even better it is totally Gluten-free and can be made dairy free by replacing butter with vegan butter (use good quality one, the best one you can find). Simple to make with my Wild Sourdough gluten free bread mix and 1:1 all purpose flour makes this cake tastes just like it is made with wheat. You can use either my white or wholemeal gluten free flour, my awesome bff Margaret used my white gluten free flour. Here is the link to my gf flours incl my retailers:
